Synopsis Filmmaker Steven Spielberg returns as director for this rip-roaring prequel to 1981's smash hit RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Here dashing, whip-wielding archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is joined by comely chanteuse Willie (Kate Capshaw) and a 12-year-old sidekick named Short Round (Ke Huy Quan). Together they search for a mystical stone stolen from an Indian community and stumble upon a dangerous Thuggee cult. Exotic locales, wild chases, death-defying cliffhangers, last-minute rescues, screaming damsels, and tribal sacrifices are the order of the day as the threesome attempt to acquire the stolen stone. A few scenes originally planned for RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK showed up in INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM--most notably the mine chase sequence, which was part of the 80 percent of TEMPLE OF DOOM shot on a soundstage. After the film's release, the MPAA's Classification & Ratings Board created a new rating--PG-13. Spielberg cast actress Kate Capshaw, who would later become his real-life wife, for the film.The continuing saga of Indiana Jones, occuring chronologically before RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, finds Indy venturing into India in search of magical stones. Along the way he tries to save hundreds of children enslaved by a leftover Thugee cult. Of all the series, this one plays most like the Saturday serials to which George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were paying homage.Theatrical release: May 23, 1984. The film was shot in Sri Lanka, Macao, northern California, Arizona, Idaho, Florida, and the soundstages at EMI-Elstree Studios in London. The film took in nearly $180 million at the domestic box office and more than $330 million worldwide. The original title for the film was INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DEATH. The name Short Round is a reference to a character in the 1951 Korean War film THE STEEL HELMET....Exuberantly tasteless and entertaining....It moves tirelessly from one ride or attraction to the next......Steven Spielberg has packed even more thrills and chills into this follow-up...
